Re: Turbodudey/quicksilvr MegaSquirt & Turbo Build

Hey, the car won't make it out this year, but I'm going to stop in and say hi...timing of family vacation out to PA to visit my mom happens to be the same as the show again this year.

Yes, I do like the S-tech springs, but by the time you buy springs and 4 new struts, you've spent the same or more than the Ultimo's. I think the Racelands are the way to go. I'm also thinking that 205/45's will look pretty nice if I lower the car down on them. Sure my 75mph highway rpm will be sky ...

The big question: 205/45r16 or 205/50r16? The 45's are shorter than stock and the 50's are taller. The perfect match is 215/45r16....but there are no tires available in that size. I'm looking at the Direzza DZ102 as my first choice right now.

I'm intrigued by the Raceland Ultimo's now that I've heard several people say they ride very well.

The left outer tie rod end is loosey Goosey, I picked up a new one today. I'm thinking about selling the tires on eBay while they are still thick, and getting some Dunlop Direzza DZ102's, in 205/50. Then I can lower it on Raceland's. It drives great other than the tie rod and the intake actuator not...

205/40R17's are tiny. Unless you lower it a LOT, they'll look kind of funny. 205/45, 215/40 and 215/45 are all better choices. Plus those sizes will all ride and drive better. :thumbup:

Yeah, I agree on all fronts. I'm surprised its leaking. I wonder if the 5w-40 Rotella T6 had anything to do with it? It's definitely not the cam sensor, because I'd be able to see it....and it's too much oil for that.

Well, the clutch is strong enough...it slips because it's oily. I changed the oil a couple days ago, and when I had it up in the air, I pulled the rubber boot off the clutch fork and looked in the housing. There was oil film all over the pressure plate. And greasy oil seeping out all around the clut...

All true. I guess we drive it on this clutch for a while and then get something stronger. When it holds, 18psi feels soooo good. :( I wish I could turn the boost back up.

Dad is back from the trip (4300 miles total), and now I'm driving the car every day while I work on my 4runner. Here's the bad news: the clutch slips.

Haha, oil change for both would probably be a good thing. Dad arrived in Phoenix this morning. All's great so far.

I set the boost controller on the "everyday" driving setting of 12psi before he left, so that should keep him out of trouble....mostly.....

That batch file for loading the firmware doesn't work on 64bit Windows. Is there a newer file somewhere?
